about

In the summer of '08 we embarked on our first tiny tour down the East Coast. We only had a little over a week, so we hit as many cities as possible, including Boston, Hartford, Philly, NYC, DC, Raleigh NC, and Fairfax VA. The final date was on July 4th, where we threw a BBQ/backyard party at Those Guyz crib in Astoria (ThoseGuyz= Steve "HB" Perski, Brian Collins, & Icerocks of DXA, our NYC producers). It was a dark, overcast day, and we had no time to prepare for this recording. We literally played on grass, in the rain, and to a small crowd of people playing Beirut & grilling. By the time we were done playing the 2.5 hour set, we had people on roof tops all around the neighborhood. We had no intention of recording a serious live album, and this release is true to our live show- one take, no overdubs, fuck-ups and all. The album was released on election day 08, and we feel strongly that it had a huge impact on Obama's win.
